NRC Revises Spent Fuel Transport NUREG and Request
On August 16, 2019 (84 FR 42024), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) published a notice in the federal register requesting comment on draft NUREG-2216, Revision 0, “Standard Review Plan for Spent Fuel Transportation”. This Standard Review Plan (SRP) provides guidance to NRC staff for reviewing an application for package approval. NRC approval of a package design typically results in issuance of a certificate of compliance (CoC) or a letter amendment for a transportation package. This draft SRP will replace NUREG-1609, “Standard Review Plan for Transportation Packages for Radioactive Material”, NUREG-1617, “Standard Review Plan for Transportation Packages for Spent Nuclear Fuel”, and all Interim Staff Guidance (ISGs) that were used to enhance these NUREGs. Please submit comments by September 30, 2019. Comments received after this date will be considered if it is practical to do so, but the Commission is able to ensure consideration only for comments received before this date.
